Wartrace December 1 Cowboy Match

36 Cowgirls and Cowboys rode into Wartrace to test their skill and have some fun. This was a fantastic day for December, I'm guessing mid-60's by noon.

Whiskey Hayes wrote his usual fast and fun stages with a couple of twists thrown in for good measure. All the stages had some movement, no "Stand and Deliver" when the weather is cooler. Save that for the 100 degree days. The Line Shack was lot's of fun with a double tap on the cannon target with your rifle and a double tap on a 12" circle with your pistol or pistols in the case of Gunfighters. We also had choices on staging long guns and gun order on some stages, as well as split shotgun at the Cemetery.

When the smoke cleared Cumberland Drifter was the Top Gun of the day, followed by Papa Dave, Randy Saint Eagle, Ben T Iron, Tabasco Jot, Scattergun Kid, Sheriff Frank Canton, Cherohala Chase, Wes Outlaw and Whiskey Hayes rounded out the Top 10.

I always like the recognize those who shoot a Clean Match and this time we had 5. Congratulations to Cheyenne Thornton, Dirtwood Dobber, Gringo Gordo, Hardluck Hudgens and Tabasco Jot.

I would like to thank Tom Hofmann, a friend of Southern Yankee's, for the pictures and videos.


Scores when available
